The Science Experience Day at Quy Nhon University

On the 2nd of March 2019, with the co-sponsorship of Quy Nhon University and the MOMA Project, the Department of Chemistry and Department of Physics have successfully organized “The Science Experience Day”, or “Ngày hội trải nghiệm khoa học” in Vietnamese. Although it is the first time the activity was held at Quy Nhon University, it attracted a great number of students, kids and their parents from Quy Nhon City and neighboring districts.

Attending the Science Experience Day, participants not only had excellent opportunities to observe and touch many molecular models, equipment, watch Chemistry Magic Shows, but also have great chances to play many educational games and do a variety of the chemistry and physics experiments. All these activities were guided and performed by the students and staff members from both departments. They were designed in educational and funny ways that were very attractive to the participants.

Below are some pictures with captions, which were taken at this exciting event.
